At 259 feet (79 meters), the Turquoise Yachts Toro is set to become the builder’s biggest boat. She remains on pace to achieve that status next year, having moved into her outfitting shed within the past several days.
The builder transferred Toro via floating dock from its construction site in Kocaeli, Turkey, to its other shipyard in Pendik. Both are on the Sea of Marmara, about an hour’s distance by automobile for perspective.
Featuring styling as well as interior design by Harrison Eidsgaard the Turquoise Yachts Toro will remain in Pendik until launch day. There, there full interiors are going into position over the next several months, along with the rest of her machinery and systems. The gleaming paint job will be among the last tasks to take place, too. The original renderings reveal a blue hull and white superstructure.
Neither the shipyard nor the design studio could release many details about the project when they announced her last year. That’s further the case now. Though, Ben Harrison of Harrison Eidsgaard does say, “She features a neo-classical exterior with hints of a funnel rising from main deck to sun deck.” Additionally, he says, “the interior is the definition of serenity and calm, featuring a huge Neptune lounge, and many other stunning features.” A Neptune lounge typically means a room partially beneath the waterline, with reinforced glass allowing the owners and guests to enjoy the extraordinary views.
Among the other previously revealed details, the Turquoise Yachts Toro has a healthy-size pool on deck. It’s about 28 feet long (8.5 meters).
Besides being Turquoise Yachts’ biggest delivery upon completion, the megayacht will be among the biggest from any Turkish shipyard.
